That's Mighty White Of Them

Economist and Clinton cabinet member Robert Reich surveys the GOP's efforts to reach beyond its base (which actually don't currently exist, though I'm sure there's a whole team working on it really hard) and concludes:
How can a political party be so dumb as to [anger] Hispanics, women, and young people? Because the core of its base is middle-aged white men -- and it doesn't seem to know how to satisfy its base without at the same time turning off everyone who's not white, male, and middle-aged.
